Greg Fishman\'s book, Jazz Guitar Etudes, contains idiomatic bebop lines and will be a great tool for any guitar teacher with aspiring jazz guitarists. Thanks, Greg!" Fred Hamilton, professor of jazz guitar, University of North Texas "These are great solos and etudes! I\'m always telling my guitar students to learn lines and phrasing from horn players, and Greg Fishman\'s book is perfect for this approach. The book is nicely done and very well laid out." Corey Christiansen Professor of Guitar, Utah State University, Visiting Professor, Indiana University \'This book is very well put together and very thorough. It gives guitar students the information necessary to obtain a vocabulary based on the bebop tradition, yet ultimately encourages them to improvise on these structures, creating their own lines and ideas. I commend you on meeting this challenge head-on, and for effectively clarifying these concepts in your liner notes.\' --Steve Cardenas Professor of Guitar, The New School, New York City \'The lines are great, the rhythm section is terrific, and I really love the fact that the student guitarist working out of this book gets to play along with both the guitarist on the CD and with your tenor. This book is incredibly well thought out. Congratulations on a fantastic book!\' --Jack Peterson, legendary jazz guitar professor (retired) from Berklee and North Texas State.
